question. do you have any regrets? >> well, of course i have regrets. the idea that milly dowler's phone was accessed by someone being paid by the "news of the world" or even worse, authorized by someone at the "news of the world" is abhorrent to me as it is to everyone in this room, and it is ultimate regret, the speed at which we found out and tried to found out, the investigation has been too slow. i think james and rupert both accepted that earlier. we are endeavoring or they are endeavoring now, i've left the company, to continue to investigate but of course, there are regrets. >> thank you. louise mensch? >> i would like to draw you out with a question i put to mr. james murdoch at the end of our last session, which is the wider culture of hacking and private detectives within fleet street and to what extent the "news of the world" felt justified in those practices, because everybody is doing it, if you like. i put to him that piers morgan, now a celebrity anchor on cnn, said openly in his book which was published before this whole controversy broke, that he had hacked phones, he s

officers. >> no. >> okay. >> i have questions about the milly do yo dowler. "news of the world" during milly dowler ab suction and murder. i have specific questions i'd like to ask you about this. could you paint a picture for us about how a newspaper like the "news of the world" goes about reporting on such a big story, what the level of editor, deputy editor, the senior reporter would be in putting together and overseeing a story like that? >> i think any big story, but for the purpose of process, most stories start out with a reporter, and that reporter may be being asked by the news editors to go and investigate a story, or they may have brought information about a story from their own contacts to the news editor. it is at that stage in a newspaper where the reporter and news editor discuss the veracity of the information, go out and check the allegations, and come back with a more considered view. you can imagine that every newspaper gets a lot of information to the news desk, and only a percentage, very small percentage makes it actually to publication. so there are many layers f

investigation has been completed into what happened in the milly dowler case and many others. bbc news reporting. >> we can speak to our political correspondent in our london studio. this brings together two of the most explosive stories you can imagine. give us a little more background into the milly dowler case, which has captured the attention of the nation. >> yes. milly dowler was a 13-year-old schoolgirl who went missing in 2002, sparking a nationwide search. six months later she was found dead. the case has recently been back in the headlines because last month and was sent to jail for murder. the girl's family had to go through really quite a dramatic court experience under pressure from defense lawyers. so now the suggestion from their lawyers is at the time of the girl's disappearance, a tabloid journalist may have been hacking into her voicemail messages and that is really shocked britain. and in particular because the family says that because he was deleting messages from the voicemail, that then gave them some kind of hoped that milly dowler was still alive. of course that

introduced the milly dowler case. >> absolutely shocked, appalled, and ashamed when i heard about the milly dowler case. only two weeks ago, eight days. >> question is the scandal now contained or is it spreading? mort. >> it's certainly to some extent continuing, let me put in the way, because it's gone beyond the specifics of this hacking case. there is a sense that there is a culture of british journalism that is just always on the attack and at any cost they're going to get some kind of a story or another, and in that sense i think the -- and the role of the tabloids, hugely influential, the sun has 20% of all british adults reading that. >> he's got four tabloids. >> yeah. four newspapers. they're not all tabloids. the sunday times is not a tabloid, and the times is not a tabloid. but they have huge influence on that country. they don't have the kind of idealogical -- >> what's the point? >> the point is that he is still enormously influential and they're being very cautious how they deal with him but this has changed the whole attitude of the british minister david cameron said

alleges that during the search for milly dowler a private detective hacked into the schoolgirl's voice mail, misleading police and causing her parents to believe she was still alive. now police officers are said to be planning any interference by the paper in many more high profile cases over the past decade. >>> it's often said there's no such thing as bad publicity, but up to 18 companies are believed to be considering withdrawing their advertising business from the news of the world. at least one has already taken its advertising revenue elsewhere. we're talking about ford. it announced it will not advertise in the paper for the foreseeable future. the mortgage lender halifax and electricity companies such as t-mobile and orange are considering withdrawing their advertising from the news of the world. together those five brands bring in an estimated $3.2 million for the rupert murdoch owned newspaper. pretty significant business on the line. all of this comes as murdoch's own news corporation aims to take over british sky broadcasting. discussions on that have been going on for mont

also particularly important to ask you today, would you say that the milly dowler story was more heavily involved with another stories that took place because of the magnitude of the events to the real shock and horror of what had happened? >> not particularly more or less involved. the one thing i would say that we have had a series under my editorship i'm a series of terrible and tragic news stories starting with sir payne and milly dowler's disappearance and the subsequent murder and then of course the following cases. and as you know, part of my main focus at my editorship at "news of the world" was in convincing parliament that there to be radical changes to the 1997 scandals act which became known as there is law, which was very similar to laws imposed around megan's law. i suppose if i had a particular extra involvement in the stories, it would have been on the basis that i was going to push and campaign for readers to write on the 10 pieces of legislation that we not through on cirrus law and campaign for this to be put forward. >> between 23, you reference the milly dowl

shocked the country. 13-year-old 2 went missing -- 13-year-old milly dowler went missing. there were allegations that "news of the world" packed into her phone and that some messages might have been deleted in that act. >> if these allegations are true, this is a dreadful act, a dreadful situation. what i have read in the papers is quite shocking -- that someone could do this -- while knowing that the police were trying to find this person and find out what had happened. >> there is more pressure on the prime minister's friend, rebekah brooks, chief executive of news international in the u.k., editor at "news of the world" when milly dowler went missing. she has always said she did not know about the actions of a few rogue reporters. she says she is shocked as everyone else. everyone makes it plain that she does not intend to resign. >> this happened in 2002. she is now chief executive of the company. she is absolutely determined to get to the bottom of this issue. >> the heat has been turned up on rupert murdoch's news empire. the house of commons will debate the latest allegations

accused of presiding over the hacking of milly dowler's phone, but right now it's not clear whether that actually happened or not. with andy coulson, he resigned as editor of "news of the world" once the court ruled the hacking had taken place and sentenced those responsible. and so that hasn't happened with the milly dowler, but still a lot we don't know. that's the difference, why rebekah brooks is still in her job and andy coulson isn't. >> sorry to interrupt, but jeremy hunt, the secretary, is due to arrive to ofcom. do you think rupert murdoch would pull out of the u.k. if he didn't get the deal? >> i don't think he would sell his british newspapers and go home. he loves newspapers, mr. murdoch. it's really in his blood. and it must have gutted him to close "news of the world," but he's still got a very successful business here. broadcasting is now his main focus. but i would be amapesed if he basically quit. >> ok. thanks very much indeed for coming in. after weeks of stalemate, libyan rebels in the town of misratah are fighting their way westward. the city is still surrounded, the

to the family of milly dowler, murdered girl whose hacked phone started the controversy. >> she is the most high-profile casualty so far in the scandal that has spread to both sides of the atlantic. for the past 10 days, rebekah brooks has been a part of the storm that has swept rupert murdoch's empire and remained by his side. today, she decided to step away. she said that recent times have been tough and i need to concentrate on correcting the distortions and rebuffing the allegations about my record as a journalist, in the church, and executive. -- editor, and executive. she said she felt a deep responsibility for those hurt. >> i am pleased she has accepted responsibility for what happened on her watch as editor of "news of the world." as i said when i called for her resignation 10 days ago, this is not just about one individual. it is about the culture of an organization. >> the man to replace her is already at his desk. he has been brought in from italy. james murdoch thanked ms. brooks for her service. he said we support her as we takes the step to clear her name. >> one of

hacking, the hacking into milly dowler, the 7/7 bomb victims' phones, and in view of that, that revelation itself should have led to her resignation. it's possible she's resigned a couple of times, it's been rejected, and finally, perhaps on the third occasion, murdoch and his advisors decided, ok, fair enough, it's time she went. >> it's strange, though, isn't it? just a few days ago, speaking to "news of the world" journalists, she said they would understand why the newspaper had to close, because she was privy to information that was going to come out, and yet she held on to her job. presumably it's also got something to do with revelations that are subsequently going to emerge. >> well, she still is privy to that information, and that information is something we'd all like to know about, although i have a fair idea what it is. which i can't -- i'm afraid to say. but anyway, i do think that plays an important role. a resignation from the job doesn't mean she's resigning altogether from news corporation. will she still be on a leash? we don't yet know those details. >> so, how

and begging for forgiveness. it requires going to the family of milly dowler and the young girl who was murdered and kidnapped whose phones were hacked and saying you're sorry. these are not the kind of things that rupert murdoch has ever done or that he's capable of doing. >> hmm. when asked if rupert murdoch would have known about these alleged phone hacking incidents, michael wolff put it this way, he says the news corp chief was in close communication editor was in close contact with his sources and content. >> you're watching "world business today." the u.s. president and republican opponents continue to haggle over the country's debt ceiling. that is next. >>> welcome back to "world business today" right here on cnn. >> let's take another check on the stock markets here in europe. it is looking ugly indeed with both off by more than 2% and the london ftse and euro smi off by around about 1.75%. strong theme here is of financials, financial stocks the big banks taking big hits, pauline, on the idea the debt crisis could spread beyond greece, even as far as italy. >> we see so m

saintuation. that's true, but you think about the milly dowler case where the 13-year-old teenager has been murdered and her voice mail is hacked, one wonders if that will be proven. >> that's true. michael is right to say it comes from a rival newspaper there's no substantiatuation at this stage, clearly the core strategy by the murdochs is to contain this scandal to the united kingdom, to britain. if it moves, if it migrates across the atlantic that raises all sorts of questions for news corp. and for its leadership. that's why sst so critical to both rupert and james murdoch to try to contain it to britain. clearly there's multiple investigations. what we have learned in brth tan is no one knows where these investigations lead. >> i've got footage i want to show you both of james murdoch being asked a question about the so-called neville email and murdoch denying he knew of widespread phone hacking at news of the world. questions are being raised as to whether he was forthcoming. let's watch. >> when you signed off the taylor payment, did you see or made aware of the four neville em
